Gayatri mantra is one of the most powerful Vedic sacred formulas. The impossible can be achieved by using the Gayatri mantra, which purifies the soul and body, and leads to rescue. What does Gayatri mantra mean? What is its sacred meaning and benefits? How do you practice it? In this article, I’ll answer these and many other questions about this mantra.

Gayatri Mantra Is a Great Tool For Karma Purification

Karma is a sequential series of events arising from the actions committed by a person but how can you protect yourself from the negative influence of karma? The solution is the Gayatri mantra!

It is believed that with the daily practice of Gayatri mantra you can get rid of the rebirth circle and remove yourself from the wheel of Samsara.

What does the liberation from rebirth provide to us? According to the Vedas, we find ourselves in a completely different world from the earthly one. Gayatri mantra is so powerful that the practitioner affects the reality in the way that all objects and space around him become purified.

During the practice of Gayatri mantra, you can refer directly to the goddess Gayatri, who is the wife of Brahma. This mantra is chanted in Sanskrit, the sacred language of the Vedas. You cannot perform this mantra in any other languages (translated) since the rhythm of sacred sounds would be lost.

Who Is Gayatri?

Goddess Gayatri Image

Gayatri is the Mother of the Vedas, who is present everywhere where Her mantra is practiced. The vibrations of Gayatri fill the spiritual body of the practitioner, changing and enlightening it. Gayatri enlightens and opens the spiritual mind and shows the path to the divine truth and bliss. This is the divine power that gives breath to all that exists and animates it. It is the embodiment of the Divine Power that protects people.

Gayatri has three names that exist in the human soul:

If one reaches harmony in his thoughts (intention), speech and actions, there are three types of divine energy that live within him — Gayatri, Sarasvati, and Savitri.

The Gayatri mantra consists of three parts:

  • deity worship;
  • meditation;
  • prayer.

The initial words of the Holy text refer to the worship of the divine. The word “dhīmahi” denotes a meditative state. The remaining 4 words express a prayerful appeal to God with a request for the gift of spiritual abilities and insight.

The constant practice of Gayatri mantra brings concrete results:

  • getting rid of ailments;
  • protection from evil and troubles;
  • dreams come true;
  • the awakening of the spiritual mind.

If you practice Gayatri with faith, you can get all the spiritual and physical benefits.

Gayatri Mantra: Meaning and Translation

Gayatri Mantra Practice

How Do You Start Gayatri Mantra practice?

To properly pronounce the mantra, you must first listen to the recording, for example, performed by Deva Premal. The performance of this dedicated European woman fills the soul with bliss emanating from heaven. The first time you can just listen to the recording and feel how the sounds touch your body and soul. Then try to repeat this mantra together with the singer. By doing this, be aware of the meaning of every sacred syllable.


It is the best to chant the mantra in the Lotus position with a straight spine. You cannot sit or stand with your back bent, because it is through the spine that the divine energy flows through the top of the head from the Universe. Watch your spine always, because it is the root of life. A straight back is a guarantee of physical and spiritual health!

At first, try to practice alone, without any interference. Criticism of others or their curiosity will have a negative impact on the results of your practice. You can listen with headphones and repeat the words in your mind. However, when it is spoken aloud that mantra will have the greatest effect — vibrations in the body connect it with cosmic energy. In this case, the physical body becomes a receiver of divine energies.

Repetition in the mind also has its positive effect, but if you need healing you should consider chanting the mantra aloud. If you decided to start your Gayatri mantra practice with listening then imagine how sacred sounds penetrate into every cell of your body and heal it while listening. Try not to be distracted during this meditation.

What time is the best for Gayatri mantra practice?

Rumi Quotes On Inner Peace Image

The best time to practice is considered to be the transition hours — sunrise, noon, sunset. These hours are considered to be the most favorable for spiritual practice and meditation. However, you can chant this mantra at any time, but during these particular hours, it is possible to achieve a greater effect.

An important rule for the proper Gayatri mantra practice is pure heart and mind. It is unacceptable to treat Gayatri frivolously, it is necessary to feel the sanctity of each pronounced syllable. The practitioner should eschew evil, not to participate in evil deeds and to help others. Moreover, if you started Gayatri mantra practice you cannot use profanity, say bad words, swear, and quarrel anymore. It is necessary to strive for purity in everything – thoughts, words, and actions.

Yoga is advised to practice Gayatri mantra during water cleansing – in the shower or during bath rituals. The power of water together with the purifying power of the mantra will free your body and mind from all impure. Also, you can practice the mantra before going to bed, after waking up and before eating. After finishing Gayatri mantra chanting pronounce the word “Shanti” 3 times.

Pay attention! Incorrect Gayatri mantra practice will lead to the opposite result!

The more you repeat the sacred words, the more benefits you will attract into your life.

What else do you need to know for the proper Gayatri mantra practice?

It is necessary to free your mind from vain thoughts and concentrate on the area of the third eye. During this practice, you should forget about the surrounding reality for a while and immerse yourself in the sound of sacred sounds that connect you with the Cosmic Consciousness.

How many times should you chant Gayatri mantra?

It is necessary to devote to Gayatri mantra practice every morning, repeating the mantra 108 times. The rest of the time you can chant this mantra 3, 12, or 27 times.

Mantras

Attune Yourself To The Universe With Kundalini Mantra Practice

Published

on

kundalini mantra image

There are many mantras in the Kundalini yoga practice. Some mantras are used more often, some less often, depending on the goals. However, in the tradition of the Bhajan Yoga school, there are mantras that are used in every Kundalini yoga class. With the help of the Kundalini mantra we “open” and “close” the space of the Kundalini yoga class.

What Is Mantra?

A mantra is one of the most effective ways to control your consciousness. The word “mantra” means “vibrations of the mind”, or “projection of the mind”. It is not just a random set of melodious sounds, it is a very powerful vibration. A mantra is a special combination of sounds that causes vibrations in the human body.

Do We Really Need To Chant Mantras?

Mantra Chanting with Prayer beads image

Beginners often have a question “why should I chant mantras and can I practice yoga without mantra chanting?”. Some people are afraid of unfamiliar words, some don’t want to chant mantras for religious reasons, and some simply do not like the mantra chanting practice.

We are all free creatures. Therefore, each of us has the right to make their own choices. However, if we involve our spiritual development into certain spiritual tradition, it makes sense to listen to the rules and recommendations that this tradition offers us and at the very least respect them.

Another reason for mantra chanting is quite simple and seems to be pretty important. As you may have noticed from your own experience, for a modern person who has a lot of worries and thoughts in his head, it is extremely difficult to stop the current thoughts in one second and switch his mind to yoga and meditation. Chanting mantras before yoga class or meditation allows us to stop the cycle of thoughts, calm down and tune in to spiritual practice.

Another very important reason to chant mantras is the profound effect they have. This effect is associated with a complete restructuring of the nervous system as a result of created vibrations.

Kundalini Mantras

The Adi Mantra

Mantra text:

Ong Namo Guru Dev Namo

Translation:

I bow to the Creative Wisdom, I bow to the Divine Teacher within.

This ancient kundalini mantra allows a practitioner to feel a connection with the divine teacher inside. “Adi” means original or first, and “mantra” means creative mental projection with sound. It is used in the Kundalini yoga for pre-class tuning so that both the teacher and the students have spiritual guidance.

The Mangala Charan Mantra

Mantra text:

Ad Guray Nameh

Jugad Guray Nameh

Sat Guray Nameh

Siri Guru Devay Nameh


Translation:

I bow to the primal wisdom.

I bow to the wisdom through the ages.

I bow to the true wisdom.

I bow to the great unseen wisdom.

This mantra disperses clouds of doubt and reveals us to the light that guides and protects us, surrounding our field with protective radiance.

This mantra is performed 3 times at the beginning of the class, after the Adi mantra. The whole mantra should be chanted on one exhale.

“Sat Nam” Mantra

Mantra Text:

Sat Nam


This mantra is most often used in the practice of Kundalini Yoga. “Sat” means truth, the reality of human existence. “Nam” means identity. This kundalini mantra is a seed mantra. The seed contains all the knowledge of the tree that has reached its full flowering. The seed is the identity of the truth, embodied in a condensed form. By chanting this mantra, you awaken the soul and attain your destiny. This kundalini mantra balances all the five elements.

“Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung” Mantra

Mantra text:

Ra Ma Da Sa Sa Say So Hung

Translation:

Ra – Sun

Ma – Moon

Da – Earth

Sa – Impersonal Infinity

Sa Say – Totality of Infinity

So – Personal sense of merger and identity

Hung – The infinite, vibrating and real

This mantra is a healing kundalini mantra. It attunes the “Self” to the Universe. It brings balance. These eight sounds stimulate the flow of Kundalini in the spine, bringing healing.

Gobinday Mukanday

Text:

Gobinday, Mukanday, Udharay, Aparay

Hariang, Kariang, Nirnamay, Akamay


Translation:

Sustaining, Liberating, Enlightening, Infinite

Destroying, Creating, Nameless, Desireless

This mantra is able to eliminate karmic blocks and mistakes of the past. Its power clears our magnetic field, allowing us to relax more easily and enter tune into meditation. It is a protecting mantra. This beautiful kundalini mantra purifies the subconscious mind and balances the hemispheres of the brain, communicating compassion and patience to those who meditate on it.

Sa Re Sa Sa

Text:

Sa Re Sa Sa
Sa Re Sa Sa
Sa Re Sa Sa Sa Rung
Har Re Har Har
Har Re Har Har
Har Re Har Har Har Rung


Translation:

That Infinite Totality is here, everywhere. That creativity of God is here, everywhere.

This is the root Kundalini mantra, which is the basis of all mantras. It helps to eliminate all troubles, negativity, and prevent misfortunes. In addition, this mantra can give strength to your words and improve the quality of your communication with others. It also helps to gain all the wisdom of the past, present, and future.

Destroy The Influence Of Kali Yuga With Krishna Mantra Chanting

Published

on

Hare Krishna Mantra Image

The Hare Krishna mantra (also known as Maha Mantra) is dedicated to Krishna, one of the divine forms in Hinduism. Krishna was the eighth avatar of Vishnu. The text of Maha Mantra was widely spread in the world thanks to the religious organization “The International Society for Krishna Consciousness“, which preached love for Krishna in Western countries.

In this sacred mantra, we appeal to the three names of God. “Hare” – to the divine energy, and Krishna and Rama – directly to God. The very words “Krishna” and “Rama” mean the highest bliss, and “Hare” is the Supreme divine energy of bliss, which helps to reach God.

Benefits Of The Hare Krishna Mantra Chanting

The main benefit of this sacred mantra is that its regular listening and chanting clears the heart from negative emotions and from bad habits and lust.

lord krishna image

Other important benefits of the Hare Krishna Mantra are:

  • it takes away all worries;
  • gives joy, happiness, harmony, and positive energy;
  • destroys evil and ignorance;
  • opens up new knowledge and wisdom;
  • takes away sorrow, sadness, and misfortune;
  • awakens love for all beings;
  • illuminates with light;
  • helps in the treatment of heart disease;
  • has a rejuvenating effect;
  • relieves addictions to intoxicating and narcotic substances.

It is also believed that the Hare Krishna mantra fulfills desires. To do this, you need to think about the desired during the mantra chanting.

The Text Of The Hare Krishna Mantra

HARE KRISHNA HARE KRISHNA
KRISHNA KRISHNA HARE HARE
HARE RAMA HARE RAMA
RAMA RAMA HARE HARE

Rules Of The Hare Krishna Mantra Chanting

Original daily japa (the practice of meditative repetition of a mantra) for this mantra consists of 60 rounds, where one round of japa is 108 repetitions. However, with increasing popularity, the Hare Krishna mantra began to chant for 16 rounds.

On average, one round takes from six to nine minutes, depending on the speed of chanting. This practice takes about two hours. Beginners are allowed to chant one or two rounds. More advanced practitioners can chant the mantra mentally while doing some work.

Other important rules:

1. All mantras, especially at the initial stage of practice, should be pronounced loudly and clearly.

2. During the chanting, you need to focus on the resulting sound.

3. Practice should be performed in a quiet place, nothing should distract you. At the same time, if possible, you can practice mantra chanting while walking.

4. The chanting of the sacred texts is permitted for any motive.

5. For performing mantra chanting you need to be in a pure state of consciousness. In no case should you drink alcohol or use any kinds of drugs before performing mantra chanting.

6. Hare Krishna is perfect for daily morning practice. Singing this mantra allows you to wake up, clear your mind of negative thoughts and tune in for the upcoming new day.

Types Of Meditation For The Krishna Mantra Practice

hare krishna image

There are two types of meditation with this mantra:

  1. Practice alone: when the practitioner chants the mantra using prayer beads.
  2. Mantra singing by repeating after the teacher, audio recording, with musical instruments or clapping hands.

Each type of meditation has its own benefits. Therefore, it is advised to periodically practice both types.

The Effect Of Sacred The Krishna Mantra Sounds

One who chants the holy name of the Lord is immediately freed from the reactions of unlimited sins, even if he chants indirectly [to indicate something else], jokingly, for musical entertainment, or even neglectfully. This is accepted by all the learned scholars of the scriptures.
(Srimad-Bhagavatam, 6.2.14)

The sounds of the Hare Krishna mantra are sacred in their nature. Therefore the sound vibration generated by the chanting of this mantra is transcendental to all lower levels of consciousness — mind, intellect, and senses.

It descends directly from the spiritual level, and therefore anyone without any prior preparation can begin to chant this mantra and feel the bliss that it brings. Even a child can chant this mantra!

When a spiritually developed person with a pure soul and thoughts performs this mantra it brings the most powerful effect on the listeners. Therefore it’s very beneficial to listen to The Hare Krishna mantra.

The Bottom Line

The Vedas predicted the coming of a tribe that will dance on the ground with their hands up and vertical tilaka on their foreheads. They will be singing the Hare Krishna mantra. This will destroy the influence of Kali Yuga and people will be enlightened and liberated. This time is predicted by many others, including the Bible and Nostradamus, telling us that the Golden age on earth will come.

The Hare Krishna Mantra is the sound representative of the Supreme Lord, or in other words the sound incarnation of the Universe. The sound of this mantra is the sound of the transcendent spiritual world. It directly affects the ether in the heart, eliminating the causes of our suffering and weakening the potency of the ego.
